So i just picked up a 154 lowboy $800.00 yeah I know someone's going to say you probably way over paid but meh. I always dive in head first its just who i am never the easy way. So its leeking oil and hydrolic fluid are there any good books that explain teardown. I already found quite a few sites designated to these tractors offering Parts still in the box. It needs love but its mine and I'm willing to do the work. Just need a starting point and that starting point will not be at the scrap yard.

Welcome to the forum! You came to the right place! I could be more help to you with a standard Cub more than a lowboy. No worries, there'll be somebody that knows about them come along any time now. Good luck with it. Gotta love Cubs!

Hello Wildbill, welcome to ATF. Another one rescued from the scrappie. Like the above, I could help if it was a Cub but someone here will be able to help. Good luck.

Hello and welcome.
A Cub Lo-boy 154 tractor / mower in good condition will go for about $2000 in my neighborhood.
One ready for a total restoration will bring $500.....if it runs.
Do a google search for Cub Lo-boy 154 repair manual and you'll have your pick. From I&T manuals to reprints of IH originals.
There may be someone who posted a free download somewhere you'll just have to sort through.
Have fun and good luck with your Cub . Let us know how it coming along.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Information on the cubs is very plentiful, as they have a huge following.
My Nephew is a big fan of those and the cub cadets.

I restored a 154 lowboy several years ago. I had good luck finding all my parts at HamiltonBobs.com. He specializes in the numbered series lowboys. He has new parts and parts tractors out.
